Once you have finalized your list of reputable florists give them a call and ask what their requirements are for scheduling a consultation. Many will first of all ask for the date of the wedding, if they are available they may ask to email you a preliminary consultation form for you to fill out, and most will go ahead and schedule a consultation time for you. The form will give the florist a chance to be ready with ideas and photos. It saves a lot of time for both parties. It is also a fantastic idea to have photos of things you like and of what you don't like. Pintrest is a great tool to use! Florists set aside time for your consultation, please don't be late or too early. If you are running ahead or behind a courtesy call to the florist is always appreciated. It is also a good idea to limit the number of people you bring to the consultation. Too many opinions will only overwhelm you and the florist and waste valuable time.
